Overview

Sometimes finding love means taking the scenic route ...

Living with her faultfinding mother has taught Leslie not to ask for much. Just watch your step, stay on the sidelines, and take what you can get. But she wants a mom who thanks her for cleaning the kitchen instead of yelling at her for missing a spot, and a boyfriend who does more than score her a seat at the popular table--someone who actually notices her sitting there.

So when Cain, the school heartbreaker, turns his Carolina blue eyes her way, Leslie can't help but be tempted, even if he's her boyfriend's best friend. Things get even more complicated when Leslie strikes up unlikely friendships with Meredith, Cain's girlfriend, and Dennis, a boy addicted to cigarettes and solitude. Despite his tough exterior, Dennis seems to understand Leslie in a way that no one ever has, and to need her as much as she needs him.

For the first time in her life, Leslie feels like she could belong. She's just not sure where.

Excerpt

"Well, don't let me waste any more of your time." I stood up. "Maybe you can still finish your game of pool, or whatever else you want to call it."

"Leslie, don't," he groaned, tossing the grass bits aside and putting his face in his hands, a gesture of irritation I'd seen all too often lately. "I feel bad enough."

"You should feel bad. Whether you call it cheating or not, that's what you've been doing." I started to walk back inside, but just as I reached the door, he stepped up behind me and pressed his hand against it.

"I'm not the only one," he whispered in my ear. "I've seen the way you look at Cain."

I turned to face him. We were so close that for a second I thought I might kiss him, not in an effort to reclaim what was gone, but to prove him wrong.

"You're seeing things, then," I said shakily. "Must be your guilty conscience."

He let go of the door and stepped back.

"Must be," he said softly, but the dark undercurrent of his words said I'd told him all he needed to know.
